Joosten, Albert Max
NAMTA Journal, v41 n3 p199-213 Sum 2016
Joosten begins his article by telling us that love and knowledge together are the foundation for our work with children. This combination is at the heart of our observation. With this as the foundation, he goes on to offer practical advice to aid our practice of observation. He offers a "List of Objects of Observation" to help guide our eye and tips for recording observations. He includes a "Guide for Psychological Observation" from "The Advanced Montessori Method, Volume 1" and ends with the message of observation as a key to the improvement of humanity through our work with the child. [Reprinted from "Around the Child 3" (1958): 23-31.]
